The formation of wrinkles and fine lines are a result of aging. As we age, our skin loses its ability to produce collagen and elastin, which are necessary for healthy, smooth skin. In their absence, facial skin develops wrinkles and creases.
Cosmetic skin treatments can help get rid of wrinkles and fine lines but most of these procedures involve removal of surface skin. If you want to eliminate the wrinkles without having to sacrifice any of your skin then micro-needling therapy could be for you.
At Stockton Dermatology, we offer micro-needling therapy for the elimination of wrinkles and fine lines. The treatment involves needling of the area of the face that has fine lines present on it. The aim is to injure the skin layer and induce a response from the body to this injury. The result is the formation of new skin layers that have collagen and elastin present in them, so wrinkles are smoothed and your face regains a more youthful look.
The micro-needling procedure that we offer you is extremely safe and has a very low down time. You can resume normal activity in about two days after the therapy.
If you want to get rid of the wrinkles, but not the skin, micro-needling from Stockton Dermatology is the answer.
